How old do you have to get
Before you're honest with your parents?
And can tell them about the time
Kate broke your heart without getting embarrassed?
How old do you have to turn
Before you see you're no longer a teenager,
Take your bullshit, burn it up, and leave those grudges forever?

How old do you have to get
Before you see your mom's an old lady?
Who's probably all alone
And definitely misses her baby?
How old do you have to grow
Before both your parents die?
And you're left saying
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I...

How old do you have to get
Before you see yourself in your family?
And start to love them for it
As your closest connection in all humanity?
How old do you have to get
Before you tell your dad and mom,
"I'm sorry, I love you. Thanks for the things you did right.
You're forgiven for what you did wrong."
